    (1) Ramy Ashour (Egypt) beat (3) James Willstrop (England) 11-5, 11-8, 9-11, 11-8 (54 mins) Ramy Ashour gained revenge for his defeat in last year's Davenport North American Open final by beating reigning champion James Willstrop in four games of electrifying squash. Ashour played high-octane, attacking squash throughout this semi-final of the Davenport North American Open at the Westwood Club in Richmond, Virginia. Willstrop looked slightly subdued in the opening two games as a succession of stunning winners flowed from Ashour's racket.

    (2) Nick Matthew (England) beat (6) Peter Barker (England) 11-6, 11-7, 11-5 (49 mins) Nick Matthew offered his apologies to England team-mate Peter Barker after a flurry of mis-hits helped him to reach the semi-finals. Number two seed Matthew was being unnecessarily polite, because his all-round game had been solid. Both players showed excellent court coverage, producing some astonishing retrievals, and at the front of the court they showed that Egypt does not have a monopoly on hitting nicks.
